Myopia can be due to the elongation of the eyeball.
- Myopia is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. Myopia occurs when the eye has too much-focusing power, either due to the eye being too long or the cornea being more curved than usual making the eye too strong.
- Myopia typically develops around puberty
- Symptoms may include:
- Blurry vision when looking at distant objects
- The need to squint or partially close the eyelids to see clearly
- Headaches caused by eye strain
- Difficulty seeing while driving a vehicle, especially at night (night myopia)
